No revs from engine when throttle pedal pushed

2003 c-max 1.8 petrol having issue when engine turned on & throttle pedal pushed engine revs after a couple of of pushes on pedal there will be no response from the engine. Once engine is turned off and process started again the same issue happens after third time engine will run as normal. P0610 is fault code coming up Ford stated alternator may be issue and possibly ECU burnt out. Alternator did need replaced and ECU given full diagnostic with no issues coming up. Does anyone have any answers why this may be happening and how to fix it, Thanks

Possible causes
- ECM Harness power supply circuit is open or shorted
- ECM Programing
- Faulty ECM Help with this

Tech notes
Check the ECM fuse, if fuse is OK try erasing the code first and if the code comes back you may have to reprogram or replaced the ECM.
Help with this

When is the code detected?
The ECM is programmed for an automatic/manual transmission but is detecting the opposite
- Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)
- Engine may not start
P0610 FORD Description
The ECM continuously monitors its internal memory status, internal circuits, and output signals to the throttle actuator. This self−check insures that the ECM is functioning properly. If any malfunction is detected, the ECM will set the code and illuminate the engine light.
Possible solution
- Resecure ECM connectors
- Reprogram ECM
- Replaced ECM

Thanks Richard for your reply I will look at the options you have advised on and let you know. Some of the suggestions have already been looked at when the ECU was taken out and sent for a diagnostic. If you have any further options please let me know. Thanks again
